In some states a petition can be filed by the primary custodian to amend the current custodial order.

The usual procedure is to file a new custody suit/petition in the appropriate state court in the county where the petitioner resides.

Judges are very reluctant to grant sole custody to one parent.

It is generally granted only when the non custodial parent agrees to relinquish their parental rights or a parent is found guilty of abuse and/or neglect and/or endangerment.

I am married but separated from my husband we have a 1 year old child and I have custody with no order What are your legal rights until you get a custody order you live in MN?

You now only have physical custody, but both you and your husband have equal custody rights to the child. That means he has a right to have physical custody too, and will not get into any trouble if he physically takes the child into his care. If you are afraid he might take the child, you will need to obtain a temporary custody order, signed by a judge, to make sure you become the custodial parent. That said, depending on your husband, the longer you have physical custody of the child, the more difficult it will be for your husband to obtain legal custody should you divorce.

What are the chances of stepmom getting primary physical custody of a child when father has sole physical custody and stepmom only has shared legal custody and is separated from dad?

There are too many variables to provide an answer.

If it is true that the step mother has shared legal custody pursuant to a court order she may also be able to obtain physical custody. You need to consult with an attorney who specializes in custody issues in your jurisdiction.There are too many variables to provide an answer.

How can I obtain a passport for my child if mother will not sign for one I have primary custody?

Depending on the state, it may only matter if the primary custodial parent's signature is present. If in the legal custodian agreement both parents must agree on travel, it is best to involve a lawyer to have it bypassed if it proves to be necessary.Ê


Who gets custody of an unborn child?

No one apart from the mother can obtain "custody" of a fetus. Custody battles must wait until the child has been born. The biological mother always retains custodial rights to a child when the couple are unmarried, until paternity is established and the biological father petitions the court for custodial or visitation rights.


If you are unmarried and the father of your child does not like your current partner could he obtain primary custody in Pennsylvania?

Not on the grounds cited in the question. The father could petition the court for custodial rights assuming he has established paternity. Unmarried women are presumed under the laws of all US states to have sole custody of their child unless a court rules otherwise. It is possible that the father could obtain joint custody and most assuredly visitation rights, but primary or sole custody would not be likely, even concerning a matter of cohabitation. This would not necessarily be the case for children born out of a marriage.

What happens if primary custodial parent moves without permission?

Generally when the parent of a minor child wishes to move out of state or to a location where the distance would affect the visitation and custodial rights of the other parent, that parent must seek the approval of the other parent and should obtain an order from the court granting them permission to relocate the child. The existing orders would need to be modified.


Can you receive child support if you have physical custody but the other parent has legal custody?

If you have physical custody by a court order then you should be entitled to child support payments. If you do not have physical custody by a court order then the physical custody order should be modified so you can receive child support. You should visit the court and ask to speak with an advocate. If that's not possible then you should obtain a copy of any custody and/or child support orders and review them with an attorney.

In Tennessee would it be easier to obtain custody of a child from a prior relationship if the father of the child were to marry?

No, the determining factor in all custodial cases is what is in the best interest of the child. If the biological father was not legally married to the child's mother it would be extremely difficult for him to obtain full custodial rights regardless of his marital state.


Does a mother have sole custody of her child?

The answer depends on marital status and existing court orders.Briefly:An unmarried mother has sole custody of her child until that status is modified by a court order. The father must establish his paternity through the family court and then obtain a court order to establish his custodial rights. He may petition for joint custody or sole legal and physical custody if he believes the child would be better off with him. The court will render a decision based on the evidence.If the parties are married then each has equal parental rights.If the parents are divorced legal and physical custody is addressed in the divorce decree.

Can a non-custodial parent withdraw a child from school without the custodial parent's consent?

Unless you have a court order giving you sole custody and have let the school know it, this can be allowed. You may have to obtain legal help on this one.ANSWERThe answer is no. The non-custodial parent cannot withdraw the child from school. The parent with legal custody has all rights of making decisions on behalf of the child. That includes decisions about school. A well run school system would ask for proof of legal custody before allowing a parent to withdraw the child from school. That action on the part of a non-custodial parent would be cause for concern and should trigger a call to notify the custodial parent.


If one parent has full physical custody and joint legal but the non-custodial parent has been MIA 4 yrs how can cust parent obtain approval for out of US travel?

can you petition mother to come to u.s. if you were adopted in u.s. The custodial parent will need to obtain a court order allowing them to take the child outside the U.S. Without the permission of the other parent (which is obviously not possible) or a court order a passport or visa will not be issued for the minor child.


Does the custodial parent require non-custodial parent's permission to obtain a passport?

Depends if both parents have Joint Legal Custody or not. If one parent is considering taking the youth out of the country, one would tend to think the other parent should be notified.


Can you prevent your estranged husband from taking your child whenever he wants?

If there is no custody order then the law presumes that the primary custodial parent can allow visitation at his or her descretion as long as it is reasonable. Meaning the primary custodial parent can set a time and date for the vistation or refuse visitation if there is a valid reason. The problem with this arrangement is that the visiting parent is not legally obligated to agree or even return the child to the primary custodial parent as the circumstances are strictly voluntary and not court ordered. When parents cannot reach an equitable agreement in such matters, the best choice is to let the court decide or at the very least obtain legal advice on how to handle the situation according to the laws of the state in which the child resides.
